The Golden Age of Hollywood

There are some good musical numbers in this film as one might expect considering the cast.  First of all 'The Glenn Miller Band' provides many favourites well known to fans of that era.  Included are 'The Modernaires' although Paula Kelly is not among them but her place is taken by Marion Hutton who happens to be Betty Hutton's older sister.  She does a credible job.  Other surprise and uncredited  performers are Dale Evans,  Jackie Gleason, Tex Beneke, Billy May and Dorothy Dandridge allthough I could not pick her out anywhere. The Nicholas Brothers do a specialty number as well which may account for Dorothy Dandridge's appearance.  

Ann Rutherford is featured as the leading lady alongside of George Montgomery.  Ann is the girl who plays Polly in many of the Andy Hardy pictures and is still living as far as I know.  

 

I really wasn't expecting much from this film but I found I enjoyed it and certainly the music did not disappoint. BTW, the print was excellent as was the sound quality.

The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
